And now for something completely different . . .

It's April 1st and while other people might be using the date as an excuse to play tricks and   have fun, a friend of mine is doing something  a little - well a lot - different.

He's going to be buried alive! For a week.

And no, this is not an April Fool.  Ian Lawman, TV medium and exorcist is to take a challenge that is everyone’s fear – to be buried alive. In a small coffin shaped box, Ian will be buried six feet under in the grounds of the notoriously haunted and historic Dudley Castle in the West Midlands.


All Ian will be living on is water and food tablets.
For seven days he will be underground to raise money for two fantastic charities, Help for Heroes and PC David Rathband's Blue Lamp Foundation. He will be pushing the boundaries of the human endurance as he lays buried under nearly two tons of soil in the pitch black

If you want to see a picture of the coffin  and find out more details - they're on Ian's Buried Alive Facebook page

All i can say  is - good luck Ian!

Wow Kate. This is more than a walkathon or something similar. What courage to do something like that. I'm scared spitless just thinking about it.
